Apple's upcoming Mac Pro is set to be released in December -- and with its launch still a month away, speculations continue regarding how it will perform. Apple has not announced which processors will be used, but according to John Poole of Primate Labs, research suggests Xeon E5 is likely for all upcoming models. Furthermore, the specs of the suggested processors appear to line up with details posted on the official Mac Pro website.

By combining some leaked Geekbench 3 results with Windows workstations that use the same processors as the Mac Pros, the estimates suggest that single-core performance will be similar for the 4-, 6-, and 8-core models. Compared to the current Mac Pros, the upcoming four-core model will be between 50 and 75 per cent faster, and the upcoming 12-core model between 16 and 32 per cent faster than equivalent current models.

By research he means looking at the Apple Store website Mac Pro page? (http://store.apple.com/us/buy-mac/mac-pro)

"3.5GHz 6-Core Intel Xeon E5 with 12MB L3 cache and Turbo Boost up to 3.9GHz"
